Before it was Ruffino's
What all was in the building? Dinardo's (of course) and I believe it was Vince Sotile's (or was it Gus') when it was built - but wasn't it operating as another restaurant or two along the way?

Before Dinardo’s and after Vince Sotile’s it was TJ’s Highland House.

I have been going there since 1983 and am still going there. I will miss Ruffin.

At the base of the Sunshine Bridge, there is an identical building as Ruffinos’s. We looked at it years ago.

Ruffinos has changed over the last 15 years, but someone built two of the same restaurants. My guess is Vince Sotile.

re: Before it was Ruffino's
The road that runs alongside Ruffino's is Sotile Lane or Street so that makes sense.

Perhaps Highland House at some point? Definitely Dinardo’s and Sotile’s.

Vince Sotile

His family was from Corleone, Sicily which I had assumed was a fictional town.

Vince was Mafia. All the Mafia guys ate there it was straight out of Goodfellas. Families had their own tables. If it was Sunday after church, you didn’t just roll randomly in and eat.
